A joyful picture book debut that encourages kids to take pride in themselves and know that they are loved no matter what.

Just as the stars light the entire world--
You shine.

Join a queer family as they celebrate Black Pride in Washington, D.C. From painting posters to walking in a Pride Parade with neighbors to watching fireworks, this special day is packed with fun.

Allen R. Wells's poetic text perfectly captures the expansiveness of a parent's love, while Dia Valle's joyful art bursts off the page. Here are words that children in every family--no matter its color, size, or shape--need to hear.

We are so proud of you!
